Poems in Progress: #19–April 19, 2016

Number 19


why do I keep them
hawk feathers–gull, goose, and crow–
with sharpened pencils

glass jar–midnight blue–
a bouquet of soft feathers
and sharpened pencils

feathers or pencils–
which is most useful to me
who dreams of flying

Leslie Schultz

Feathers Pencils

Until Tomorrow!

  1. It is interesting, isn’t it, how sometimes just glancing at a familiar object can spark a new insight.

  2. Leslie, I particularly love and “relate” to this poem today. It has that magical element that allows it to be very personal and yet universal too. Thanks for sharing it!
